Classy macho scent
Sometimes you can't tell whether you're going to like a scent or not just by sniffing the nozzle of a sexy faux marble splash bottle. Not this time. It opens big and boozy and settles with spices, herbs, citrus, and lavender - typical notes for the late 80s, but here they are stunningly well-blended. In the mid I get a slightly lipsticky, elegant leather. My nose is sensitive to iris, so you might not get any lipstick at all. In the dry-down the leather really shines amongst patchouli, vetiver, and restrained deer musk.

Both projection and longevity are good on this EA-Bethco bottle... seems earlier versions were powerhouses. It's not the kind of fragrance I'd want to overapply, but maybe that's just me.

Fendi Uomo is a classy macho scent that makes me feel like the bee's knees. It's what I wear when even leathers such as Weil Kipling aren't refined enough for the occasion.

Masculinity Level: Christopher Walken as the impeccably-dressed mafioso in True Romance.

Understated class
Fendi Uomo opens as a fresh-herbal aromatic fougère with an tamed down leathery-woody base, quite soft but “virile”, and an overall sharp barbershop feel (lavender, carnation, citrus notes, leather...). Fairly pleasant, clean and well made, but frankly also quite conventional, at least initially and for a while – in a “boring” meaning, much similar to many other fougères from the ‘80s in the same kind of leathery-herbal style (no powerhouses, no civet/leather bombs, rather just “dad’s classy aftershave”). Nonetheless, during the evolution it becomes more interesting, more unique and quite more fascinating: it gets darker, drier, losing a bit of its formal understatement and becoming more smoky, more austere, more sophisticated and shady. Fans of recent Amouage leather-based scents like Journey Man may like this (just compare the drydowns). It’s still somehow conventional, therefore still a tad boring honestly, but good. Overall I’d consider it a solid, compelling, understated, not-that-exciting “all-year-rounder”, unworthy any high price or chase, but worth a try for any herbal-leathery fougère fan.

6,5-7/10

Complex, mature and quite elegant
I have nothing but admiration for the old Italian style of perfume making, and Fendi Uomo is typical of this.

The fragrance opens up with a host of notes that can be almost overwhelming but which work together really well to give the impression of a well dressed, slightly conservative image of a man. Pure masculinity in the old tradition.

With lavender, cinnamon, carnation and herbs, followed by rose, iris and vetiver, with leather, patchouli and amber constantly in the background. It can be dense and a little heavy, but it dries down beautifully with leather and earthy, herbal florals to give this impression of masculinity. Think expensive cut suits with wide lapels, the finest Italian leather shoes, immaculate grooming. I don't see this primarily as an "old man" type of fragrance, but more of a "classic" style type of scent. Like a young man in an old Italian film or magazine dressed in the best male fashion of his day.

In this world where this kind of smell is slowly disappearing (Fendi Uomo has been discontinued for some time now), it really is nice to smell the old classic style of masculinity once again. Nostalgia, yes... but certainly worth it.

A truthful creature of its time that lost its kick because of reformulations. Still enjoyable.

Very rich, very complex, it has the typical smell of the 80’s fragrances in a good way. I find it quite similar with Roja Goodman’s. Great!
